GreenDaily: Because nature can't wait until tomorrow.

Watch Uncharted: Drake's Fortune's first level

After watching the first level of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, it's hard not to be blown away by the sheer graphical beauty Naughty Dog has been able to capture. At times, it really feels like you're watching a movie as Nathan shoots, punches, climbs and jumps his way throughout the level.

Andrew noted the game has come a long way since its E3 showing, and we can certainly tell. The most exciting part is Naughty Dog still has nearly two months for some fine tuning before it's set to ship.

1. wow, that looks pretty good.

2. look to me like boring Tombraider action with upgreaded graphics. Let me gues: you can only wait a few month until you understand how to solve some mysteries.
By the way: The video is very laggy

3. That was a poor attempt at trolling, 'masterA'.

I downloaded the 900mb HD video and there is absolutely no lag, no slow downs, and the game looks absolutely brilliant. The gameplay also looks improved, such as the shooting system.

I'll definitely be getting this game.

4. a must have! i've been a fan of naughty dog since jak and daxter so i know this game will be awesome!

Oh yeah well Halo 3/Metroid looks to me like an upgraded Doom! Lulz.

The video doesn't do this game justice. It looks great, I don't know how it plays, the camera looks a bit shaky. I'll get it, so long as it doesn't bomb.

6. @ -viper- where'd you get the HD version? I want to download it.

7. This game looks freaking hard. I hope not a revisit of Jak2.

8. That AI looks pretty smart...

9. @2

Just about every franchise is more or less an upgraded graphics and sometimes gameplay version of a previous release. At least Uncharted is a new one. Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia were very different in their acrobatic control, Uncharted is much more realistic in what Nathan Drake is able to do and can't do.

10. Maybe it's just the guy playing, but the camera looks like it would get annoying. It seems fine if the people are in front of you, but when someone behind you is shooting at you it seems like you have to run blindly to find them.

11. Anyone else think the blood makes this look worse than it is. The game is running gorgeously and them blame a blob of one tone blood ruins the scene.

Posted at 12:56PM on Sep 30th 2007 by Andy

12. #11 Yes agree with you, this game just look nice, but I think it's a little unrealistic, when he can jump from building to building, especially when he jumps LONG :)

13. wow looks amazing i never knew the ps3 could do this good and its still very early.

Posted at 1:12PM on Sep 30th 2007 by TekTro

14. It looks like it would be easy to get lost. And yeah, I agree that those blood spots that appear on the screen look stupid.

Posted at 1:20PM on Sep 30th 2007 by jimfish

15. What was that animal at 2:17?

Posted at 1:32PM on Sep 30th 2007 by Andy

16. I think it was a bird.

Looks fairly nice. I agree you can see slight problems with the difficulty it looks a little disorientating too. The frame rate looked fine, graphics sort of remind me of the first Crash Bandicoot...the scenery was always the most charming aspect of that game.
I imagine with an injection of variety in later levels it could be worthwhile even if the difficulty remains flawed.
I actually think it may benefit from a few quiet moments though. Pacing is very important. Look at have beautiful scenery, a few moments occasionally to enjoy it would be great. Again I would like to see more puzzle mechanics...but I am sure they are in there.

17. I miss HDR lighting effects though. After heavenly sword, anything else looks a tad pale. And I hope it won't be as hard as it looks. I like games to be easy

18. This game looks pretty fun, and as of now its on my must buy list for november along with assassins creed. I'm not a fan of the blood on the screen tho, kind of takes away from the cinimatic feel of the game. Hopefully that is an option that can be turned off in the menu. By the looks of it this will be a AAA title for the ps3, which is good, it needs a few.

Posted at 3:40PM on Sep 30th 2007 by Josh

19. It looks brilliant, and it's a must buy for me. I just wish it had multiplayer or co-op or something.

Posted at 7:37PM on Sep 30th 2007 by Naaiif

20. I can only get one game in the month of November and with all the great games coming out during that month, this is the game that I'm most interested in. All the other games will have to wait until after Christmas, Naughty Dog's done it again.
